Maybe not all that traditional but I took a frozen duck out of the freezer this morning. Should be defrosted enough by Sunday. I thought I'd do something retro - Duck a l'Orange. I haven't made that in about 20 years. I don't have a recipe. I'll google one. I'll serve it with rice and green beans. I hope the skin turns out real crispy.

Dessert, hubby's making an apple pie.

i'm not making dinner but an excellent roast is standing rib roast of pork from the zuni cafe cookbook.

Basically get one according to the amount of people you're feeding, bring it home and cut in between the loin and the bones (but not all the way down). Sprinkle with lots of salt, pepper and crushed mustard seeds(optional). Tie the roast up and let it sit in the fridge until ready to roast. Preheat the oven to 400 and take out the roast. Spread a thin layer of dijon mustard on the roast and put it in a roasting pan just large enough to hold it. For 4-6 servings you usually roast it for an hour-hour and a half. Let the meat rest and prepare the sauce with the drippings. Add a splash of white whine and a half cup of water or some chicken stock. Slice the roast and pour remaining drippings into the sauce.

Other seasonings you could use are coriander and fennel seeds with garlic, or rosemary, lemon zest and garlic. There's also orange zest, red chili flakes, garlic and fennel seeds (optional). I've only made the one with mustard.
